**Travel grants/scholarships available as part of the application form**
We’re pleased to announce the 2018 Western Mining Action Network Biennial Conference on September 27-29 2018, in Kamloops B.C., Canada, at the Thompson Rivers University. This year, the Stk’emlúpsemc te Secwepemc Nation’s (SSN) are our hosts!
Note: Everyone wanting to attend the WMAN 2018 Conference must apply, regardless of whether scholarship assistance to cover travel and/or on-site costs is needed, as we must manage our space as well as cost logistics. US attendees will require a passport to travel to the conference location. Your passport must be valid at least 3-months after the Conference dates: until January 2019. If you do not already have a valid passport, please be sure to order one now and show proof of request to WMAN before August 1st, as it can take up to 8 weeks to obtain one (to order passport, see here).
**Due to higher costs associated with this meeting location, WMAN will not be able to provide scholarships to everyone requesting one, and may not be able to cover the full amount requested. We encourage you to apply early and ask that you consider covering the costs (or a portion) of your own travel, if possible, to allow us to help those with the greatest financial need with our finite resources. The selection of scholarship recipients will be based on a diversity of criteria such as: size of organizations and financial need; Indigenous and non-Indigenous affiliation; geographical diversity (e.g. U.S./Canada, North/South, East/West, etc.); and more. Typically, we will not give more than one travel scholarship per organization.**
If you have any questions while filling out this form, please contact:Marvel Karch, WMAN Conference Lead Logistics, firstname.lastname@example.org, 406-252-9672, orJill Yordy, WMAN Conference Assistant Logistics, email@example.com, 907-987-9535
Please complete one form for each person applying to attend.
** Please note that all applications will be reviewed, but we cannot guarantee your acceptance, space, accommodations, or support for travel and on-site costs. Participants should receive a confirmation of their acceptance by mid-July or within 3 weeks after their application.**
